One striker likely to leave St.James’ Park this summer

Nile Ranger control a ball in training at Benton, Newcastle

Ranger - Lot of raw potential but a poor attitude to accompany it

If one was to look at Nile Ranger’s CV, it doesn’t make for bad reading at all. Once of Southampton, he featured in Newcastle United’s promotion to the Premier League, and this year contributed to Sheffield Wednesday’s return to the Championship. Unfortunately he has the attitude of a gangster and is still surrounded by people he could do without. While at Newcastle last year, Alan Pardew had multiple complaints about the striker’s behaviour and how he conducts [Read more →]

Alan Pardew would be foolish to let Nile Ranger leave the club

Nile Ranger smiles on in training at NUFC

Ranger - Has a lot of potential and can become a top player at St.James' Park

John Carew would be a worthwhile signing for Newcastle United

John Carew celebrates after scoring for Aston Villa

Carew - Released by Aston Villa today after completing loan spell at Stoke City

I have always been a fan of John Carew and was quite disappointed to see him go to Villa first, especially as a swap deal for Milan Baros.

He is awkward for defenders and he is something we could do with, since [Read more →]
